A classic recipe, first devised by Alphonse Prunier over a hundred years ago.
This XO is aged in small casks of only 270 litters enabling a more complete ageing.
Prunier X.O. represents the continuity of the family style and evokes the type of Cognacs the Company used to sell 100 years ago.
Brand & Family History
Since 1769 the House of Prunier has been part of the local and global history of Cognac.
The oldest traces of the family go back to 1701, when the family worked with local growers as wholesalers. After being inspired to create their own brand, the first “Prunier” bottles appear in 1769.
Jean Prunier built the first of many cellars in 1850 within the Cognac region, where they still stand to this day. Now Prunier has expanded to yet more facilities such as their cellars in the village of Gimeax, known for their ideal location for the ageing of Cognac.
Since the beginning, the original premises have been watching over each generation. One after the other, playing their part and leaving behind their own heritage in the form of the Vintages that Prunier exclusively reserves.
The initial fragrance is rich and intense. Tobacco, leather, nuts, dried fruits and oak.
Well balanced and fine tannins are contrasted with strong flavours of toffee, chocolate and cinnamon.
The aftertaste is long and poised with a clean silky finish.
